Theory and Structure in Addiction and Cure
This book will be of value to everyone interested in the prevention of addiction and the detection, treatment and rehabilitation of drug addicts. It interprets and applies research findings about the causation and cure of drug addiction using the author’s personality theory which is extensively compared with that of other personologists. The book includes the qualitative analysis of 12 addict case studies. It is especially timely in view of the need for effective legislation, judicial procedures, and treatment programs to deal with the opioid crisis in the United States and Canada.
